I grew up in Seoul in South Korea. I started dancing at the age of fourteen and now I live in Berlin. When I was younger, I thought that a good dancer just moves well. But at some point, I realized, that it's more important what I express with the dance, what energy I radiate. In that sense, Icarus is a very interesting topic, it's longing for the unknown world. When I was younger, I imagined one day when I became an adult, I’ll shine like the stars. But the imagination of childhood is something else than life. But here, where I'm now, in wonderful Slovenia with wonderful people, it looks like the shining present I imagined as a child.
